Rooting

Typically takes up to around 3 weeks for the cuttings to begin to root.

Watering

Add 1 gallon of rain or pond water to your gallon jug. DO NOT USE regular store water or water from the tap. There are chemicals that will kill the plants. Check your water levels once a week. Replace any water that has evaporated from the jug.

Cuttings

You can add as many cuttings to the gallon jug that will hold at the top. However we recommend only a few per gallon. As this will make it easier to inspect and remove your cuttings without damaging any roots on the other cuttings. Roots are quite fragile and will come off easily. If your cuttings do not touch the bottom on the gallon that is fine. You only need 1/3 of the cutting to be above water. Anywhere that the water touches, roots will develop over time.

Lighting Options

Artificial lighting methods allow for quicker rooting. However a South facing window will suffice.

Repotting

Once your cuttings establish roots, you will want to move them to a 3inch pot. Plant the entire pod and rootball in the new pot (potting soil works best). Here are some videos to help you.

While examining your cutting you will notice that anywhere the water is touching. Any wooded growth will turn into green new growth. After a while in the water it will develop white little bumps. These are roots. They will turn into little white worms. We recommend letting the roots gain a bit of length before placing them in soil.

Note from the grower

Your unrooted cuttings have already been cut back to the freshest node, and covered in rooting hormone.

While in the water jug. The leaf on the cuttings will look droopy. This is normal. This is due the water evaporating.

Peat Pod/ Soil Method (Other Method)

For best results inflate the zip lock bag and place it under a strong indirect light source. We get decent results just relying on a South facing window but see much better results under some sort of bright indirect light (LED, Fluro, HPS). The Kratom Bible is available here on the #kratomAPP

Watering

If the ziplock bag stays sealed water loss will be almost nothing. Misting our pouring a table spoon or two of water in there when the pod starts to firm up is recommended.

How high should the humidity be?

Lastly, we add the cutting to a plastic Zip Lock like bag or you can take them out and put them into a very large plastic container. Regardless of how you are rooting them you need to ensure that the plants are kept in high humidity at all times. Do not leave the cuttings out of the bag for more then 20 min at a time. These plants require 80 – 100% humidity at all times.

One of our customers  did a walk through on how to root kratom cuttings we recommend you check it out. 

How often should I water unrooted kratom cuttings?

Customers should  leave the plastic bag these cuttings come in sealed at all times they should not be releasing moisture. There should be no need to water these cuttings. In the event the soil medium begins to firm up it is advised to mist or pour a table spoon or two of water. The soil medium should always be moist to the touch at all times. Even one night of a dried up soil medium will kill a plant seeing as they are so young. You can also mist the cuttings with a water bottle.

Do I need rooting hormone?

You do not need rooting hormone for cuttings to root. We ship out every cutting with rooting hormone already applied. However if you are going to add rooting hormone we do recommend that you are sparing while applying. If you add to much hormone and cover the cutting it will make it hard for cuttings to produce roots thru the hormone.

Process Unrooted Kratom Cuttings – How to Guide – When we process our kratom cuttings we always follow the same process. First, we take the cutting off the tree and clean the nodes and extra leaf off of each cutting. It is important to note that kratom cuttings do not require leaf on the cutting to produce roots. In fact, having large leaf on a cutting can be  a disadvantage as leaf requires larger water consumption from the cutting. This is why we cut our leaf into a triangle shape.

The next step requires adding rooting hormone. We have found that the best way to ensure rooting is to use a lot of rooting hormone. As much as possible. We strive to ensure that each cutting has the highest success rate possible.  After adding rooting hormone the next step is to place the cutting in the soil medium. Wither it is peat pods, soil, or peet pods a good soil medium will be required to allow these plants to succeed. You can even grow these plants hydroponically, however we will be providing the rooting medium. If you are planning to grow hydroponically do add more rooting hormone after taking out of soil medium. Buy Unrooted Kratom Cuttings.
